Congress MP demands probe into NGO hands in Goa Beach Pollution

In his Calling Attention motion at the Parliamentary session, Shantaram Naik (Cong) demanded a probe into the role of internationally- funded NGOs behind pollution in beaches saying recently some NGOs in South, mostly funded by foreign countries were found to be scuttling nuclear projects. “Some of these NGOs are involved in anti-national activities,” Naik said.

He also demanded an action against passing vessels from Goa beaches which cleaned their vessels near shores and in the process released effluents and oil in the water turning the beaches black and unfit for tourists.

“Image of the beaches were tarnished among international tourists and Coast Guard, Navy and other agencies can look into the issue,” he said.

Nearly 2.5 million tourists visit the beach and a conspiracy angle should be probed, he suggested.
